It's time to show off our Spring Knit Kits, which go up for sale next Wednesday!
First, we have the Little Stag Knit Kit inspired by this springy deer fabric and a stunning skein from Life in the Long Grass. The special edition colorway from the Irish dyer is named Winter Thaw and is a white and aqua combo sprinkled with a hint of sapphire, plum and gold.
The bag for this kit is made by Mommy Sews (a larger version of the bags in our 2016 Halloween Kits that got great reviews) and is a fully reversible, medium sized drawstring pouch that fits a 5-6 skein project. A huge size for one of our special edition kits.
And I've brought back our hand made stitch markers. Aren't these sheep and flower adorable?
To give you something to nosh on, Debrands Fine Chocolates (a local fave) has assembled a Gourmet PB&J and Rose Carmella Classic Chocolate set. Rachael and I sampled this for you already... and it's amazing. You're welcome.
Want to see the other Spring Knit Kit option? Take a gander at the Cottontail Knit Kit featuring a limited edition colorway from Hedgehog Fibres.
This kit was inspired by this awesome bunny fabric, with an interior that mimics eyelet.
And we've gone all Irish on the yarn for both kits, bringing you the artistry of coveted Hedgehog Fibres too.
I love the pale background with the pops of color throughout, don't you? Definitely a great take on spring.
And, of course, this kit comes with it's own set of adorable stitch markers and the same set of Debrands Classic Chocolates in Gourmet PB&J and Rose Carmella.
I'm super proud of these kits. Each part is hand crafted, from the stunning yarn and bag to the tasty chocolates and adorable stitch markers. And the profect bag for this kit is much larger than we usually offer, fitting a 5-6 skein project.
If you think this is something you'd like, I expect the kits to go up for sale the morning of Wednesday, March 22 (yesterday there was a typo about the date- they do come out the 22nd). No exact time, but typically before 10am EST. The kits will be priced in the mid-$60 range, which is a deal for imported yarn, a larger bag, detailed markers and chocolate. Our kits tend to sell out in 5 hours (sometimes 2 hours!), so please don't hesitate if you think you'd like one/both/many-for-friends. Yes, you can order as many as you like and even add more items to your order to qualify for free US shipping at $85, or to take advantage of your International flat rate shipping.
